When it comes to making material decisions chairside, clinicians, instead of having a number of materials at their disposal for differing clinical situations, often just have one material in each category to fall back on, leaving them with the ‘I use it because I have always used it’ philosophy. Today, in order for materials to work they need to be used properly and in the correct clinical situation. This CE webinar will explore commonly confused and clinically misused classes of materials. It will give the participant a clear understanding of how and when to use the appropriate material.

Current milling technologies and materials have made indirect restorations more accessible to the dental practitioner. With many choices available, clinicians must first decide if an indirect procedure is indicated, and if so, which material is best suited for a specific application. This CE webinar will review the indications for indirect milled restorations with a focus on milled nano-hybrid onlays and crowns.
